In total, Phase 3 will comprise 1200 residential units, a 200 room hotel overlooking both the town square and the Power Station, 350,000 sq. ft. of retail and restaurant space, a 15,000 sq. ft. library and further leisure space.
The development has been designed by two of the world's most famous architects; Frank Gehry and Foster + Partners.
This phase, 3 of 7, will form the epicentre of the entire project; two residential development zones located either side of the High Street.
Both architectural practices are collaborating on the High Street; Gehry Partners is designing the residential buildings to the east of the High Street, with Foster + Partners designing the residential buildings to the west.
